View Transaction Information

Updated: April 11, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Occasionally, if a communication line fails or a faulty distributed transaction application leaves unresolved transactions, you may need to view a list of transactions that are coordinated by a Distributed Transaction Coordinator (DTC) instance, along with properties on the transactions, to determine the problem and manually resolve any incomplete transactions. You can use these procedures to view the DTC transaction list and the transaction properties.

Membership in Administrators, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete these procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at Local and Domain Default Groups (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83477).

  1. Open Component Services.

    To open Component Services, click Start. In the search box, type dcomcnfg, and then press ENTER.

  2. In the console tree, double-click the computer for which you want to view the transaction list.

  3. Double-click the Distributed Transaction Coordinator folder, and then locate the DTC for which you wish to review transactions.

    • To review a local DTC instance, click to open Local DTC and then click Transaction List.

    • To review a clustered DTC instance, click to open Clustered DTCs, locate the clustered DTC by name and then click to expand its contents, and then click Transaction List.

You can use this view to see all transactions, their status, and their identifiers. To resolve transactions, see Resolve Transactions Manually.

  1. Open Component Services.

    To open Component Services, click Start. In the search box, type dcomcnfg, and then press ENTER.

  2. In the console tree, double-click the computer for which you want to view the transaction list.
